    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    Actually a tornando from that storm hit down about 10 miles from my house. Alot of towns around me have no power and they say it might be a couple days before it is totally restored. We where lucky and the storm just grazed by us. We have the the mountain that my house is built on the back of and the trees that are around us to thank. There where tress down all around us on the main roads out of here. We just had a few small branches littering the yard. We went out to dinner with the kids Friday and got home between 8 and 9pm. We where unloading the van and just got the last bag in the house when hell broke loose. The wind was really bad. Tress where almost laying side ways. I would have hated to get the full force of it. Some of my wife's friends came over for showers and such since we are one of the few lucky ones to still have power.



    Here's a clip from the town we live just outside of, actually only about 5 miles away.


    And this story


    Here tells a wider story.

    You're a smart guy. I read your posts every day. Why do you think that people can not beat the storm?
    We can spray the liquid silver, 20 miles away. We can pour out cement.

    About the only way to beat a storm like that one would be to run away from it. I on the other hand was in my backyard watching the trees blow around. :toast: The actual bad part of the storm only lasted 5 to 10 minutes. Then we had some rain and it was gone. The whole thing lasted maybe an hour if that.

    I did yesterday ride over to C'ville and make sure my cars that aren't here where okay and the building they are in was good. No power there so tomorrow will be interesting.

    Sorry, Norton.
    I can cheat. My Minister saying anything about my personal is denied. Brandon and Poswala undestend me.
